Reportedly celebrities including Ariana Grande, Emma Watson, Jennifer Lawrence, Kirsten Dunst, Victoria Justice, and Jill Scott have had pictures that were on their phone and stored on their iCloud accounts stolen and made public.
Collections of the pictures are now easily found on various torrent sites by serching for “fappening”. The initial public leaks were on image posting site 4chan.org There is an active ongoing discussion on Reddit and Tumblr.
But what is really interesting for us here is reports that the images may have been originally collected by a number of different hackers and then traded among themselves using Bitcoin for payment.
Another nefarious use for Bitcoin? What do you think?
